Description[edit | edit source]
This vast crack in the earth emits a cold purple or violet light that seems to come from impossibly deep underground. Its source is unknown and cannot be seen from the top, and no one who has gone to investigate has been seen alive again. This light can be seen from miles away.
Inhabitants[edit | edit source]
It seems to be a common gathering spot for the mutated horrors that prowl the Mournland. It is theorized the purple light played a part in creating them. While this is unconfirmed, it is certain that it affects them, as those monsters that frequent the Glowing Chasm grow even more foul and corrupted than before. Prince Oargev ir'Wynarn of New Cyre is an expert on these mutant creatures.

Notes[edit | edit source]
Strangely, artwork of the Glowing Chasm appears in the online art gallery for Five Nations, but is barely mentioned in the actual book, and even then under the incorrect name "Great Chasm", suggesting it was removed prior to publication.
